While working on a children's TV show, the comedian found out that she had won her first Grammy Award.
Comedian Tiffany Haddish won a Grammy Award in quite possibly the most heartwarming way possible. While presenting a children's TV show called 'Kids Say The Darndest Things', her producer revealed to her about her shiny win.
Haddish walked away with Best Comedy Album of 2021 for her 'Black Mitzvah' release. Beating off stiff competition from the likes of Bill Burr, Jerry Seinfeld and Patton Oswalt, the comic is the first black woman to win in that category ever since Whoopi Goldberg in 1986.
And her reaction to winning is priceless. While recording the TV show, her producer decided that now was the perfect moment to break the news to the Grammy winner. Initially in disbelief, Haddish gets emotional before jumping on the opportunity of passing down some of her visdom to the two children present with her in studio.
Here's the moment Tiffany Haddish found out about her Grammy win. You can also watch the full version on YouTube.
Following the moment, Haddish uploaded the video to social media, writing: "The producers decided to tell me I WON a Grammy while I was interviewing these two young ladies Lauren and Ava, that want to someday be president of the United States of America.
"I was flooded with such a sense of accomplishment and relief. I kinda didn’t know what to say. I just wanted to cry but I knew it would have confused the babies. So I decided to use that moment to teach and share my feelings."
